Nothing screams, historic town, like an old fashion bottled Coca-Cola, am I right!
I’ve recently gotten a lot of questions from you guys, asking for me to capture some of my favorite parts of Texas! So this past weekend Matt & I did exactly that. When we decided to head to Austin and San Antonio for my birthday weekend, I knew I had to stop in the historic district of Gruene, in New Braunfels, TX, on the way!
This town reminded me of Mystic CT, but instead of the ocean this town has hidden in the Texas Hill Country. The town was bustling with women antique shopping, groups of tourists and teens with tubs headed to float down the river, and an old fashion ice cream palor or two.
If you decide to venture to Gruene make sure to do the following:
SEE: Gruene Dance Hall, Texas’ Oldest DanceHall. Today, the Dance hall stands as one of the most important live music venues in Central Texas. Not to mention the movie MICHAEL featuring Jon Travolta was filmed here.
EAT: Gristmill River Restaurant and Bar – This restaurant used to be an old cotton mill, not only is it historic, but it has a view of the Guadalupe River and the food is on point!
DO: Antique shop! If you like Antiques then you died and went to heaven! However, if you want something more active than shopping, just float the Guadalupe River! Grab your friends, rent some tubes and layer on that sunscreen.
Overall Matt & I were just stopping by but we are already planning a trip back! As I said, it reminds me of Mystic, an old summer town; totally worth seeing.
P.S: Who else like old fashion Coca-Cola more than canned? xx Aubrey
